    Just to give you a little bit of a background the Pope issued a "papal encyclical" on the subject. What is a papal encycical? It is basically the Pope's personal opinion (aka it's not necessarily church teaching and Catholics do not have to believe everything in a papal encyclical).  The Pope has stated we should all use our resources responsibly and yes he does believe there is some man made climate change going on. Again, his personal opinions. When a Pope speaks ex cathedra that means it has to be believed by the faithful. Only a few Pope's have used Ex Cathedra in the last 200 years.

    (Revelation 11:18) . . ., and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

    If humans were not ruining the earth the bible would not fortell it as happening. Matthew 24:21,22 says we have reached a point where we could destroy all flesh off the earth. another indication the destruction of the planet.

    The Pope is no authority over anything at all. He's just a leader of the biggest pagan organization in the world.

    By reciting the rosary every day with care and sincerity, a person can know numerous truths about climate change/the lack thereof. It is also good to have true devotion to St. Kateri Tekakwitha, who is the patron saint of the environment.

    I'm just guessing here, but the subject probably doesn't interest him.
